Mao’s Aemazing movie night – Cube

I came up with an awesome idea of having a movie night with Aeizzle.

“Ae lives all the way in the US, and you live in HK, so how does this work?”

All we do is go onto msn, choose a movie to watch, and make it go in sync.
Get a popcorn while we’re at it!
It’s actually just like watching a movie with a friend, but there’s more talking since we type instead of talk.

And if I get a webcam we’re gonna have facial expressions :)


So i chose the first movie; Cube (1997)

Watch it here!

“Six different people, each from a very different walk of life, awaken to find themselves inside a giant cube with thousands of possible rooms. Each has a skill that becomes clear when they must band together to get out: a cop, a math whiz, a building designer, a doctor, an escape master, and a retard. Each plays a part in their thrilling quest to find answers as to why they’ve been imprisoned.”

Basically a Saw-esque film.

A low budget film, un-known casts, but damn! It’s actually an amazing movie. Tons of twists and turns. Literally made me say “Say whaaat?!”, on msn; “omg!” or “x.x!!!”.

Near the end of the film, true colours of the characters are revealed. Lets just say they turn out to be the opposite of what they were.

Just expect the unexpected xD

I also believe that the cube itself represents the many different sides of people. He told me to add that because it sounds so clever! :D

And the colours of each rooms evokes the emotions, as well as building tensions. The director’s amazing at building-up tension!

By the end of the film you’ll sit back in your chair, slumped, and think to yourself how far the characters have come since the beginning of the film… and reflect on your mathematical skills…

The only thing we didn’t like much was the ending.
It. made. me. go. ugh!

From here onwards it may contain SPOILERS and traces of nuts

So what we learned from this film is…
– Don’t doubt our gut-feeling
– HxC people always die first, so don’t be HxC
– Lie down in a fetal position and don’t move
– Stay in school and study math
– All autistic people are Rainman; bribe them with gum drops
– Black people are ninjas; agility and stealth-wise
– Long dialogues will result to your death
– Love does not conquer all

Basically I REALLY enjoyed Cube…. and here’s Ae’s aemazing thought;

ae の発言:
it ws pretty good
ae の発言:
found the black guy useless though
ae の発言:
besides bossing them
ae の発言:
his purpose was to show discord among them
ae の発言:
since he was the only person with something to lose
ae の発言:
ae の発言:
ae の発言:
my two cents
Bow Wow Mao? の発言:
dayum ae
Bow Wow Mao? の発言:
you good

We both ended-up agreeing that his actions can be justified due to his desperation to escape, and return to his family. Who knows, maybe we might end-up doing the same thing as him.

But I know I’ll probably stay in one room, cry to myself, and survive… hah! :)


We’re going to watch Survive Style 5+ next!
Checkout imdb.

According to Ae it’s a Japanese-Tarantino type film. Which is an automatic winner for awesomeness!

  1. That’s actually a good idea. I’ve done this before with tv shows since it’s already pretty much sync’d up but watching a movie while talking about it to someone online would be awesome.

    I ended up buying Cube after watching Cube 2 which was pretty much the same the but with more graphics and breaking the laws of physics. It’s an amazing concept that seems like it would make for a fun game of tag if it wasn’t for all the death.

    Then I ended up watching Cube 0 which is a weird prequel that included one of the characters from Cube 1. It really wasn’t what I expected after watching 1 and 2.

    Anyway, Watch Cube 2 if you wanna see some weird rooms with a slightly different yet same old story.

  2. Paragraph Film Reviews Says:

    Did you ever watch Survive Style 5+ ?
